Sanson-Jaillot re-engravings by the publishing house Johann Hoffmann in Nuremberg

Cartographica Helvetica 35 (2007) 9–19

Summary:

With the proof that Johann Hoffmann (1629–1698) lived in Nuremberg since 1655, the most productive map publisher in the German-speaking part of Europe before 1700 has yet to be rediscovered. He brought out a total of over 50 separate maps, about as many books illustrated with maps, and a panoply of publications related to the subject of maps in general. A special group of Hoffmann's map production are re-engravings of maps by the Parisian publisher Alexis-Hubert Jaillot, based on Guillaume Sanson. These re-engravings appeared in Nuremberg between 1674 and 1685 and are hardly mentioned in the literature.
